Taylor’s video was prompted by a controversy that arose over the potential admission of 7-year-old Bobby Montoya into a Colorado Scout troop last month.
The Girl Scouts of Colorado eventually released a statement explaining, “We accept all girls in kindergarten through 12th grade as members. If a child identifies as a girl and the child’s family presents her as a girl, Girl Scouts of Colorado welcomes her as a Girl Scout.”
Rachelle Trujillo, vice president for communications of the Colorado Girl Scouts, added, “If a child is living as a girl, that’s good enough for us. We don’t require any proof of gender.”
Taylor, however, joined the efforts of HonestGirlScouts.com in suggesting GSUSA’s leadership – which has included prominent activists for homosexual causes – and choice of convention speakers demonstrate a commitment to advancing the homosexual agenda.
“Right now, GSUSA and councils are focusing on adult agendas that have nothing to do with helping girls,” she continues. “I ask all fellow Girl Scouts who want a true, all-girl experience not to sell any cookies until GSUSA addresses our concerns. I ask all parents of Girl Scouts who want their girls to be in a safe environment to tell their leaders why you will not allow your girls to make any more money for GSUSA.”
“There are better ways to support Girl Scout girls,” she concludes. “You can still support your favorite Girl Scout without giving GSUSA more pocket money.”
Taylor’s video and boycott has also prompted some opponents to call for buying even more Girl Scout cookies, the Los Angeles Times reports, including the plea of another YouTube video-maker named Buck Angel, who claims to be a man now but to have been a Girl Scout as a child.
“I was born as a girl, but I always knew I was a guy, and all my family and friends and even the Girl Scouts knew I was a little boy. And they accepted me into the Girl Scout troop, and everyone was loving and giving and it was never an issue,” Angel says. “I just want to give a shout to Girl Scouts for accepting transgender girls into the Girl Scouts troops.”
GSUSA reports 3.6 million girl and adult members and claims to build “girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.” The organization can be contacted through its website.
